1  Re: Halloween Costume-A-Long? (2009) in Craftalongs by FeeSewBug on: September 16, 2009 11:23:51 AM
On to my second costume

Little red riding hood but like half mauled, I was thinking the scar the David gets in American werewolf in London, subtle Smiley
But 1950's style or traditional?

Was also think of getting this for the bodice and making a white top for underneath

So what do you guys think?
Cheers Fee x

Here goes long post WARNING with lots of pictures(sorry about the size!)

I'm making a victorian outfit, I have a petticoat so far and a bodice mock up...
Petticoat front and back

Bodice front and back

fabric for skirt

A corset I have that doesn't fit my bust(a bit too big)

And my boots!!

So I need help with the red skirt and the bodice, I want a longer length with a pleated flounce, like the images below...

I know I need to redraft my bodice pattern and the front, side front are simple but the side back and centre back I'm having problems with. I just can't work out how to do the pleated back part?

Also with my red skirt, my pattern is flat at the front that widens at the bottom and pleated at the back but it seems to hold the fullness of my petticoat in, is this supposed to happen?

Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help!
I also have another post about my second costume, hehe

I love Halloween, I'm so excited as I have Two events to go to, that does mean two different costumes!!

A victorian-ish get up for a screening of Nosferatu and Little red riding hood but I can't decide if it should be 1950's style(Victory rolls!!) or a kinda traditional dirndl?

I'm needing help with my victorian get up but didn't want to post a massive story(but if anyone is willing to help me I will elaborate!)

Also LuvelyCritter heres a pic of my other half as the cheshire cat Smiley

6  Kasia skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by FeeSewBug on: July 04, 2009 01:27:02 PM

This is my version of the Kasia skirt from burday style(it's free!!). Was quiet easy to make altho the instructions on the waistband are not clearly written.
I cut to a 44 and it fits fine abound the hips but gapes around the waist band, not a massive gap tho maybe 2/2.5cm. I also took up the hem by 4 inches.
I used red wool and blue and white polka dot cotton from my stash, I love the button up front, looks more complicated than it is, altho doing button holes was a pain!
I love the colours, makes me cheerie when wearing it!! ( I honestly didn't wear it out in brown boots!  Tongue)

Comments and critiques would be great!!

7  Charity Shop Scarf Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by FeeSewBug on: June 18, 2009 09:49:36 AM
Our fashion and textile class had to make garments for a charity fashion show, way back in October, we were put into teams of 3 and given 15 to spend in the charity shop on anything we liked.
We chose silk scarfs as we knew the rest of the class would choose existing garments.
We made a tight fitting bodice and a full skirt. The bodice was a cheap corset(thank god for primark!) and the scarfs were folded to fit the form, I had to hand sew every fold down, crazy amount of sewing later and Tada! done!
The skirt is pretty simple we sewed all the scarfs together joining one corner to another and forming a chain, we then turned a channel for elastic and fini!
Our team won out of 8 entries. Wooooop
Here's the pics, our model was Katy she was in our group and did an amazing job!

Love to hear your opinions!

8  Help me paint my worktable! in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by FeeSewBug on: May 04, 2009 11:12:53 AM
This is my worktable, it's an old dining table, it has been sanded down and painted with white undercoat.

This is the design I would love on my table

but I think it looks far too fussy so I photoshopped the bits I wanted to keep but now I don't quiet know how to place the bits I like on my table.

My colours are white for the whole background, red and light blue.
Could anyone help?
